don't let the title put you off!By a customer from Northolt , 17 Sep 2008
[Highly rated reviewer]I only went as my sister won tickets to the review, i wasn't keen on going and had no intention of seeing this film as I was expecting a chick-flick, which i find quite dull. However, i was very pleasantly surprised...this film has a lot of emotion running through it, was superbly shot and very touching. I did not recognise Kristin Scott Thomas at first as she looked so drab and worn out, its quite a difficult subject that it takles but does so in a sublte and delicate way.
Although it is probably more of a girl film than a boy film, I do think guys would actually quite enjoy it. As with all good subtitled films, after the first ten minutes, you do not realise you are watching a subtitled film!
My only negative point is that it was slightly too long (nearly 2hours), but a numb bum was a small price to pay for a superbly directed/acted film which will bring about many discussions. This should certainly win some nominations if not prizes!

Ditto reviewBy 663322 (37 reviews) , 15 May 2013Simple, elegant, thought provoking, thrilling and sensitive. Ditto all other reviews rating this film above 4. Kristen Scott Thomas character travelled a long emotional journey in the last 15 years and it shows in how frail and elegant she is.
Brilliant FilmBy a customer , 03 May 2013I wasn't too sure whether to rent this film or not but I am so glad I did. You could say it is a typical French film and brilliant for it. Well acted and at a good pace. It may not be for everyone but I totally enjoyed it.
Everything may not be quite as it seemsBy yesterdayman (19 reviews) , 15 Apr 2013A very moving and well acted drama. The pace and development of the story is just right. As good a film as I have seen in a long time, but then Kristin Scott Thomas in these french relationship dramas never disappoints
A very , good movieBy Martin77 (211 reviews) from PLYMOUTH , 21 Mar 2013A simple tale very well told with a superb acting performance from Kristin Scott Thomas. A most excellent French movie in my view .
Enduring unconditional loveBy Bobsview (554 reviews) from Gloucestershire , 13 Mar 2013Kristin Scott Thomas is outstanding in this. French with sub titles. Woman returns to her family (sister) after being banished for 15 years. A very good film from someone who does not usually like French films. Powerful and deep social commentary..
